'Beautiful Liar' loves beautiful game



Shakira closed the World Cup with a raucous shaking of her money maker on Sunday, but only after she professed her love for the world’s game.

If it weren’t for the World Cup, she says, she never would have met her boyfriend, Spain defender Gerard Pique, with whom she has an 18-month-old son.

“I will never forget that I met the love of my life at the World Cup,” Shakira said as she prepared for her performance, according to Fox News. She met her footballing beau when promoting her 2010 World Cup anthem, Waka Waka — Time for Africa.

“If it wasn’t for the World Cup my son Milan would not be here,” she said.

Milan was in attendance Sunday when his mother put on quite the show in Rio de Janeiro. After her performance, the singer landed a wet one on Pique, inset, and carried their son onto the world’s greatest stage.

As for the hubby? Pique is definitely bummed about Spain’s early exit, Shakira says, but “I have a way of consoling him.”
